Troy Aikman Reveals Why He Decided To Leave FOX
© Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports
While on Sportsradio 96.7 and 1310 The Ticket in Dallas, the Hall of Fame QB Troy Aikman opened up about his decision to FOX for possibly Monday Night Football...

“It is a strange set of circumstances that led me to where I am now and not be back at FOX,” Aikman said, via the New York Post. “And I never would have envisioned that six months ago and so it is strange. When negotiations couldn’t reach, what I felt was fair value, I was able to negotiate an opt-out after six months which allowed me to be a free agent.

“Then FOX never jumped into the game. They never made an offer. I didn’t have any conversations with Fox, until I got a call to congratulate me on my new deal. So that was a decision they made and it’s fine.”

Romo may not have the rings, but he is heads and shoulders above Aikman in the booth.

Even his explanation why he’s not going to be back on Fox this fall is boring

Aikman knows football, but he's boring in the booth. Not much charisma.

What is it with former players being commentators? Seems the pay is awesome though

Few can break down a formation or play like a high level QB. The way they see the game is not typical and far over the head of 99.9% of those that watch or follow.

If they re-negotiate an opt-out for you, then don't bid, or call, it is because they don't want you.

maybe fox was bored to sleep by Aikman like I was. He's ok but his voice is the voice of sleep.
